Synopsis

Synopsis

Campaigning for Christopher is the fourth of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Ummm...that's a lie. Skye, Elise and Margaret simply aren't the sort of girls that share. And frankly, with the election right around the corner, Chris doesn't have any time for love either...)

Christopher Winslow, the youngest of the four Winslow brothers, was born with a silver spoon in his privileged mouth, which has made it difficult for him to establish his credibility in the fast-approaching congressional race. Working against the clock to assure Pennsylvania voters that he is forthright, trustworthy and able has been an exhausting challenge, but Christopher's chances at beating the incumbent look good.

Julianne Crow, a plus-size model struggling to make ends meet, jumps at the chance to make a little extra cash on the side. What does she have to do? Slip something into Christopher Winslow's drink and take some very naughty pictures with him.

But Christopher is nothing like Julianne expected, and when her actions sabotage his hard-earned campaign only a month before the election, her guilt is overwhelming. She offers Christopher her help in an effort to repair the damage she's caused, but can anything change the fact that he sees her as an opportunist and a mercenary? When she starts campaigning for Christopher, he may find out there's more to her than meets the eye.

Return to the world created in the English Brothers books with this fresh foursome of scorching hot Winslow Brothers!

Guest Review by Tammy Cole

 

Katy Regnery does it again. I fell in love with this couple and I was sad to see I reached the end of the book. Christopher is on track to win the congressional race and couldn’t be any more happy with his campaign. Julianne is a waitress/model trying to find her place in this world that is so different from everything she is use to. These two have lived two very different lives but they are both strong people who are determined to accomplish their goals.

Julianne is an American Indian who grew up on a reservation and has moved to make a different life than the one she grew up in. The way Julianne and Christopher meet is not one that is going to form a likely friendship/relationship. I don’t want to spoil the plot, but Katy does an excellent job in making you respect and like Julianne. I loved how Chris was honest in his feelings and never led Julianne on. I really enjoyed this book for many reasons but the one thing that most intrigued me the was learning about the life Julianne lived growing up. Another great book by Katy!

 

Excerpt

He had no right.

He had no business.

But it didn’t matter, because he couldn’t help himself. He leaned forward and claimed her mouth hungrily with his.

Her lips moved beneath his immediately, her hands flattening on his chest as he reached around her waist and pulled her up against his body. Her lips tasted like coffee with a hint of sweetness, and he wanted more—more of her, more of the sweetness. Sweeping his tongue over her lips, she opened for him, and he tilted his head, slanting his lips to cover hers more perfectly. Their tongues tangled—velvet heat, timid at first and then more sure, her teeth razing his flesh as he plunged hungrily into her mouth, swallowing her whimper and adjusting her against his body so that his hardness lined up with the valley of her sex. He groaned as she nipped his bottom lip, leaning her head to the side as he slipped his tongue back into her mouth. Moaning softly, she arched into him, and he slid his hands up her back, bracketing the sides of her breasts through the flimsy material of her blouse and feeling the frantic, ragged pull of her breath beneath his fingers as he kissed her.

And kissed her.

And kissed her.

Another whimper sounded from the back of her throat, and suddenly he realized that the hands she’d flattened against his chest were pushing him away. With a grunt of frustration, he released her, stepping back. Reaching up, he touched his lips with the back of his hand, panting as his knuckles dragged over the sensitized skin. He scraped in a shaky breath, staring at her, forcing himself not to lunge for her and draw her back into his arms.

Her chest heaved up and down from the force of her breathing, her blouse was disheveled, and the skin around her lips looked pink, though her lipstick was still perfectly in place. Her eyes were wide. And angry.

“You can’t do that!” she said in a breathless whisper. “You can’t just—”

“I know,” he mumbled, dropping his hand from his lips and raking it through his hair. What the hell had he just done? What was he thinking?

“You can’t accuse me of . . . of falling for you two days ago and then . . . then k-kiss me in p-private like . . . like the world is ending today. It’s not . . . it’s not fair, Chris.”

“I’m sorry. I just . . .”

He turned his back to her, confusion making him wince. He didn’t trust her. He didn’t want anything to do with her. Why couldn’t he help himself around her?

She raised her voice, speaking angrily to his back. “You said this was a job. An . . . an act. That didn’t feel like an act.”

“It wasn’t.”

“You’re confusing me. You don’t want me, then you—”

 He palmed the back of his neck and turned to face her, his own voice low and lethal in his ears. “I don’t want you?

“No!”

“Are you insane?” he barked.

“Are you?”

“Jules,” he gasped, staring at her in disbelief because how could she not know this? Despite what he’d said on Monday, didn’t she know? Couldn’t she see? And then suddenly he was speaking, his words coming out in a rush, a relief, a completely inappropriate stream of consciousness that he’d never, ever meant to share with her. “I can’t think about anything but you. I dream about you. I have imaginary conversations with you. I go to YouTube and replay that press conference kiss over and over again to torture myself because I can’t get enough of seeing you in my arms, melting into me. I don’t want you?” He took a step toward her, stalking her, taking her arm so she couldn’t pull away from him, and leaning into her personal space until they were almost nose to nose. “I’ve never wanted anyone as much as I want you!”
